“Don't Wait: Check the Date!"
NFPA has officially announced “Don't Wait: Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years” as the theme for Fire Prevention Week, October 9-15, 2016. The focus on smoke alarm replacement comes as the result of a recent survey conducted by NFPA, which showed that many people don't know how old their smoke alarms are or how often they need to be replaced.
MFD adds NARCAN to treat overdose patients
The Fire Department has added Narcan to its complement of medical services provided in Minneapolis. The drug can reverse an overdose from heroin and other opioid-based drugs and medications. The Fire Department administers a vaporized version of the treatment nasally. The cost of the drug treatments and a portion of the training costs are being reimbursed by the Minnesota Metropolitan Emergency Services Board.
The Fire Investigation Unit of the Minneapolis Fire Department operates jointly with the Arson Investigation Unit of the Minneapolis Police Department.
The fire investigators work 24 or 48 hour shifts. They respond to all fires with significant losses, as well as any incidents where the cause of the fire is of suspicious or incendiary origin.
If the department determines that arson is the cause of a fire, the Minneapolis Police Department conducts the ensuing investigation.
